Three community groups — The Access to Permanent Housing Committee, the Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition and the Haliburton County FoodNet – posed questions on poverty, housing, and food insecurity to candidates in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock running for office in this provincial election. In this installment, we hear from Liberal candidate Brooklynne Camp-Waldinsperger.
What will your party do to increase and maintain access to affordable, safe housing, in addition to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Canada-Ontario Investment in Affordable Housing Agreement?
Camp-Waldinsperger: Many families are finding it difficult to secure and sustain housing in Ontario. Our party recognizes this challenge facing Ontarians.
Since 2003, the City of Kawartha Lakes Service Manager has received over $29 million in funding for affordable housing, of which $12.8 million has been contributed by the province.
